  1. About to eclipse 717 Texas from our vantage point! Selfishly hoping we'll still have a partial view of 609 Main...however this and the Preston will soon have a huge impact on the skyline coming in from the west!
  2. This is the open triangle lot across from Hughies on North Main bordered by Harris Ct & Conoly St....so it seems to be a couple parcels of land. Fence is up with some site work...permit suggests there might be a 'school' going here, though I haven't been able to locate much more beyond that.
  3. Very slow going (to the point I was worried construction had stopped) but managed to catch a couple guys working on site this afternoon
  4. White Oak Landing sjgn is up, and per Redfin looks like a couple potential units are already pending....
  5. Agreed. In general, that stretch of 19th really could use a face-lift (better parking, sidewalks, landscaping) to make it a much more attractive area and something of a destination. Unfortunately, I haven't come across any plans for that to actually happen 😕
  6. Thanks for sharing! Cautiously optimistic....I always thought this space had great potential to be something more than a vacant storefront. I see some similarities with this property and Henderson & Kane in 6th Ward for example...
  7. The old Highland Park Care Center on 2714 Morrison closed and relocated a few years back; since then the site has sat relatively untouched and been quite an eyesore IMO. Saw a demo permit the other day and they didn't waste much time....its already a pile of rubble today (it was too dark to get a good photo). This is a good tract of land, not sure what the plans are but will be nice to see something new in this spot. It is next door to the mid rise condo (Morrison Heights) which seemed to generate a lot of debate when it was built several years ago...so would not be surprised if something less adventurous is in the works here....
  8. Looks like this one is well underway; hard to see but they have dug quite a bit in the back and plenty of activity at the site late this week...
  9. Some of this might be old news , but I noticed a demo crew working on an adjacent house today which got me looking into this property. This article from October 2018 (at the end) references a "2727 Flats" apartment midrise to be constructed on a small parcel of land on Houston Avenue just across from Woodland Park...with the owner being "2731 Houston Ventures LLC" https://www.virtualbx.com/construction-preview/houston-metro-to-upgrade-northwest-transit-center/ The only permits I can locate are wastewater-related from September. An existing variance request sign for January 2019 is still posted, best I can tell is that they received the variance to reduce the building line from 25ft to 10ft on January 31st. Sharing in case anyone out there has more info on it, or perhaps this one may still be in the works? This empty lot is a bit of an eyesore, having some more density in the area sounds like a plus to me.
  10. First floor going up fast, liking the small setback between the building and Taylor St (which currently has the right lane closed for related construction I presume)

    Remodeling continuing to progress along nicely!
  12. This will be a great add to the area, and hopefully the TXDOT staging area goes with it. If only we could get the Army Corps of Engineers to approve the MKT connection between Stude Park and the Heights Trail - that project has been dragging on for years and would go a long ways to connecting two of the major hike and bike trails!
  13. Went by the site the other day and looks like some preliminary work has started. The lot is closed off and mostly demoed at this point.
  14. Yep! It's Studewood. Got that changed...
  15. Here's the permit info, luckily it let me post a screenshot this AM. Looks like the dates are from Oct 2018 - 3K square feet would pretty be decent-sized for a restaurant / wine bar!
